What is the prevaling opinion on questions for recipes or favorite ingredients? I think they are a little too broad for this forum. BrewAdvice is for focused questions. However this site is about community parcipitation so I want to get a consensus before down-voting questions.
I don't think that questions asking for recipes are appropriate for BrewAdvice. It's just too broad. "What's a good stout recipe?" is just too subjective. It's better for a forum, like home brew talk.
A question like "I'm making a stout, and the LHBS is out of roasted chocolate malt, what's a good substitute?" works. Or "Here's my stout recipe, what yeast would you suggest?" also works.
However, as of right now, we don't have a recipe sharing tool on this site, so just asking "What's a good recipe for [style]?" isn't appropriate.
I think that asking for critique of a specific recipe posted is fine. However, asking for recipes is probably a needless distraction. Most of the "do you have a recipe for" questions we have gotten so far haven't even specified all-grain or extract, making them doubly useless.
I say recipe critique yes, random "do you have a recipe for x" no.
